This listing is for the PDF crochet pattern to make this item, not the finished product.
I designed this top to be a basic starting point for festival or crop tops. In working the final edging round on this top, you end right at the bottom corner edge. This pattern is written to make the exact top shown but you can easily at that point add any lower design you like.
This pattern uses basic stitches only. A few decreases are used and those stitches are explained.
Pattern includes instructions for 4 cup sizes: A 28+, B 30+, C 32+ and D 34+. Because the back is tied, only a minimum chest measurement (measured just below the breasts) is given. This smallest size would be the top tied with the edges of the bands meeting as is shown in the 'back' picture within this listing. On larger chests, the bands are just separated more with part of the tie running across the back.
Made using worsted (medium #4) weight yarn, approximately 140 (A), 150 (B), 190 (C), 200 (D) yards. I recommend cotton or cotton blends:)
